This princess may be part time, but she is full time beautiful in my garden. I have had this plant for many years, and the light pink color always opens perfectly.
A winner in every way!

Had my first seedling bloom from her this summer, and it's a keeper!

For those looking for a great pink, pickup PART-TIME!

I was rather startled to see the pic I took of PTPrincess in the data base. I had forgotten just how pretty it was. Unfortunately, this plant which was sent as a bonus about five years ago bloomed beautifully the first year--hence the picture you see--but did very little the second year and then it died the third year--we could never figure out why. It was in an excellent position in the garden, received the requisite number of sunny hours to do well, also received lots of TLC and still declined. There is only one Davisson left here in our garden, and it is just so-so. For some reason, these DLS don't do well for us, don't know if it is a weather issue or what. Nevertheless, I love seeing pictures of Judi's daylilies, they are truly beautiful and evidently are excellent plants for other people.

I took many pictures of this one this summer, as the plant had reached a size that really produced. Flowers are very interesting form. Are the sepals what is called a spatulate? Flowers are also spaced nicely.
